Correlations of Rainfall and Global SST's

Hi All

I am trying to create a spatial map of the correlations between a local areas rainfall over southern Africa and global SST's.

I am not quite sure as to go about this and was wondering if there were any examples in NCL someone could kindly point me to so that I can do this global map of correlations relative to a local area.

I have been trying to do it myself but the map wont plot as it says the array needs to be 1D or 2D and mine is currently 4D as I am using the escorc function and it says it only returns ccr(lat,lon) but mine is much more but I think it is due to the fact that the domain sizes are not the same.

Would I be correct to think I should average my local/smaller domain and then correlate it to global SST's?

Many thanks for your help in this regard.

Kind Regards
